Derivative of Constant
Covid-19 has led the world to go through a phenomenal transition .
E-learning is the future today.

The derivative of constant function is zero. That is , if 'c' is a real number, then$ \frac{\text{d}[c]}{\text{d}x} = 0$
This shows that the slope is zero that means the line is parallel to the X-axis.
So the equation of the line is y= b( b is any y co-ordinate.
slope = m =$\frac{y2-y1}{x2 -x1}$
slope of AB =$\frac{3-3}{5 -1}$
slope of AB =$\frac{0}{4}$
slope of AB =0
As the slope is zero so the equation of the line AB is y = 3( as the line passes through y=3)
slope = m =$\frac{y2-y1}{x2 -x1}$
slope of AC =$\frac{3-3}{1 -(-1)}$
slope of AC =$\frac{0}{2}$
slope of AC =0
As the slope is zero so the equation of the line AC is y = 3( as the line passes through y=3)
Prove that the derivative of a constant function is zero using the limit definition.
Proof : Let f(x) = y = c ( 'c' be any real number)
f(x + $\triangle x $) = c ( as there is no x in the function)
According to the definition of the derivative of the function
$\frac{\text{d}y}{\text{d}x}=\lim_{\triangle x \rightarrow 0}\frac{f(x + \triangle x) - f(x)}{\triangle x}$
Plug in all the values
$\frac{\text{d}y}{\text{d}x}=\lim_{\triangle x \rightarrow 0}\frac{c - c}{\triangle x}$
$\frac{\text{d}y}{\text{d}x}=\lim_{\triangle x \rightarrow 0}\frac{0}{\triangle x}$
$\frac{\text{d}y}{\text{d}x}=\lim_{\triangle x \rightarrow 0}0$
= 0
Examples of derivative of constant
Function : 1) f(x) = 4 2) f(x) = -3 3) s(t) = π 4) y = 0.8 5) y= -3/4 |
Derivative: 1) f'(x) = 0 2) f'(x) = 0 3) s'(t) =0 (since π is constant) 4) y' = 0 5) y' = 0 |
